Maryland bringing in Perez to pinch-hit
The opportunity to do so is there, especially a week after Middle Tennessee stunned the Terps. The loss of Skinner, who arguably was playing as well as anyone on the defense, to a high ankle sprain is a severe one for Maryland.
Perez could be a capable replacement. Clement, who knew Perez since their little league days, still figures his friend will be a hit Saturday.
And he probably will deliver a few in the process.
“He can have a big impact because he’s a dominant player - he’s real physical and real tough,” Clement said. “It’s tough to say. Skinner’s good, too, but I don’t see anything falling off with him being out there. He’s like a linebacker out there playing safety.”
Notes - Defensive end Mack Frost is battling an ankle injury, and Dean Muhtadi might see time at end against California. …
Maryland has worked left tackle Scott Burley at right tackle in an attempt to add some offensive line flexibility. …
Friedgen said sophomore safety Dominique Herald has requested a redshirt. Herald, a regular on special teams last year, was suspended for this year’s opener and did not travel to Middle Tennessee.
